Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites.

While on tour with Dimmu Borgir, DevilDriver, and Kataklysm, Unearth stopped at the Kool Haus in Toronto, Canada and were connected with PureGrainAudio for a short video interview.

In what is easily the most officially “punk” interview PGA (and yours truly) has ever had the pleasure of conducting, bassist and vocalist of the notoriously wild band Kill Cheerleader broke the interview norm by interview himself.
